Pearl of Wisdom

from Asma' bint Yazid al-Ansari that she went to the Prophet (SAWA) whilst he was with his companions, and said, may my mother and father be ransomed for you! I come to you representing women, and know may my soul be sacrificed for you that there is no woman that exists in the east or the west who does not agree with me if she was to hear of my visit to you. Allah sent you with the truth to men and women, so we believed in you and in your God who sent you. We women are restricted and limited, confined to your [men's] houses, fulfillers of your desires, bearers of your children, and you men are superior to us because of the Friday and congregational prayers, visiting the sick, participating in burials, pilgrimage after pilgrimage, and better than all that, fighting (jihad) in the path of Allah. When a man from among you goes for the obligatory or voluntary pilgrimage, or is stationed away from home, we protect your property for you, sew your clothes, bring up your children, so what do we share with The Prophet (SAWA) turned his whole face to his companions and said, 'Have you ever heard a woman speaking better than she has in her asking about her religion?' They said, ?O Messenger of Allah, we did not think that a woman could be so guided like this!' The Prophet (SAWA) then turned towards her and said, 'Leave, O woman, and inform the women after you that for one of you to be a good spouse to her husband, her seeking his satisfaction and her following of what he approves is equivalent to all that you mentioned.' So the woman left, saying: 'There is no god but Allah (la ilaha illallah) and aggrandizing Allah (Allahu Akbar) with happiness.'

Question : #211 Category: Marriage - Muta'
Subject: Muta and Imam Ali
Question: Salam,
Regarding the topic of temporary marriage, our brothers from the Sunni school reject the practice as their 2nd Calipha had banned it.
Why is it that the 4th Calipha (Imam Ali AS) did not re-introduce it, if it is actually deemed as acceptable?
Answer: Narrations indicate that Amr bin Harith had contracted mutah with a Persian woman during the time of Umar.
It was Amr bin Harith who neglected his permanent wife and family responsibility due to contracted Muta relationship.

This was a reason which caused Umar to ban Mutah during his reign.

The followers of Imam Ali (as) have always observed the practise of Mutah and always recognised its legitimacy during the period of the Caliphs as our Holy Prophet (saw) mentioned it in the Holy Quran (4:24) for Jabir Abdullah Ansari.

It's crucial to point that the followers of the Caliphate had not given allegiance in faith to Imam Ali (as) but only politically.
During Imam Ali (as) 4 year Caliphate, he was engaged in 3 battles/civil disputes which indicate that his position as the Fourth Caliph was not endorsed by all which indicates his ability in power to return rulings banned by the previous Caliphs.

Sallams, the sunni are not against the caliph of Ali as you have always made it appear to shiite. i think what is most important is for u to really understand the reason for the permissibility of mutah and the abrogation. You will come to the acceptance that the abrogation of mutah is the correct opinion. May Allah guide us aright.
